If I had Dio's talent for words, I could paint you a masterpiece, but alas, there can be only ONE Master and May he rest in peace and may the World be blessed with his talent once again.
He lives in the deep sea, that's what EA means. Two eyes like diamonds is ANU o Jehova looking for him to kill him. But without no success.
ANu is a reptilian and Hate Humans, he is the real devil. The true hard as steel is the reality that behind the Christian propaganda Lucifer is the real god creator of mankind and one day he will come and humans will know the truth.
But right now Jesus is the coca cola of the word. Here is the interpretation. It is about a german U-boat captain. A man that kills hundreds of men in the name of god and his country.
Evil to us but. Much of the song feels like an expression of how a heroin junkie might feel, vacillating between reverence for the drug, hiding their addiction from their day life, self deprecation for where it's lead them, and hope that they can still turn their life around.
That said, like most good songs it's layered with meanings and vague enough that people can look into it and see different things.
The openness to multiple different interpretations is one of the hallmarks of music from this generation. This is about a martyr or a pious figure, mainly someone who is "pure," their attempted escape from evil and feigned richeousness.
Though the theme remains it does vary on the story, a structure used by Dio for story telling through song. It is NOT about heroin or illicet drugs.
I am not saying that it is all about the bible. When I look at the first line,"Holy Diver, you've been down to long in the midnight sea, oh what's becoming of me" is see that it is about a richeous charecter that has fallen to the level of the seedy underworld, not necessarily hell but a place of wrong doing, crime-ridden etc.
This song, to me, discusses the false pretenses that appeal and how those are used by some for their own purpose, Holy Wars of sime kind, the line between belief and absolution, extremism.
Dio himself says in his anthology that holy diver is about a christ like figure and the people he's trying to save are being selfish and trying to keep him there with them when they can't see that he's trying to save them.
While it is tempting to interpret the song as related to drugs, because "riding the tiger" is one slang for doing heroin, I think the message may be more spiritual and mystical, similar to the song Heaven and Hell written by him.
Also for me it kind of evokes The Pearl by Steinbeck! Like in Heaven and Hell, where Dio writes: The ending is just a beginner The closer you get to the meaning the sooner you'll know that you're dreaming So it's on and on and on, oh it's on and on and on It goes on and on and on, Heaven and Hell I can tell Sounds to me like a personal conviction or insight that rings very similar in this song: "Between the velvet lies there's a truth that's hard as steel yeah The vision never dies life's a never ending wheel say Holy diver you're the star of the masquerade no need to look so afraid jump jump Jump on the tiger you can feel his heart but you know he's mean some light can never be seen yeah" "life's a never ending wheel" from this song is a similar image to "they say that life's a carousel" from Heaven and Hell.
And the people are saying to him, 'Don't go,' with innuendos of tigers and stripes and hearts and being eaten. It was meant to show just how selfish humanity is, that this one form of humanity on this one world said, 'No, don't go down there and save anybody else.
Stay here, we need you, you are ours. His solo career was far less successful than Ozzy's, and there was some animosity between the two, but when Dio died of cancer on May 16, , Ozzy released a statement saying: "I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Ronnie James Dio.
Metal has truly lost one of its greatest voices. This song is an expression of Dio's rebellion against his Catholic upbringing, which he felt distorted the message of the religion.
Instead of teaching by love, the nuns would keep order by smacking the kids with rulers and telling them they would go to Hell if they didn't behave.
The lyrics deal specifically with Revelations where Satan is cast to the earth. The tiger is symbolic of the wild beast that comes out of the sea, as mentioned in Revelations The malevolent imagery in this song is something that goes along with the genre.
So it's kind of having to use your own imagination. The themes around evil are just so much more cognizant to the music that we make because minor keys are so prevalent in most metal music.
It's hard to write a song in an entire minor key and talk about nice things. In my case, I've done it differently. I've always tried to be someone who has warned people that there is good and there is evil, and that you have a choice, and your best choice is probably not to be evil.
This is what evil can do to you, this is what evil has done to the people that I know. It depends on your perspective of evil though.
I mean, drugs are evil, too much indulgence in bad things is evil. Dio found a fertile fantasy framework for the big Sabbath themes of madness and desolation".
Smartest thing I ever did. AllMusic reviewer Eduardo Rivadavia praises the album, stating that "aside from Ronnie's unquestionably stellar songwriting, Holy Diver ' s stunning quality and consistency owed much to his carefully chosen bandmates, including powerhouse drummer and fellow [Black] Sabbath survivor Vinny Appice, veteran bassist Jimmy Bain, and a phenomenal find in young Irish guitarist Vivian Campbell, whose tastefully pyrotechnic leads helped make this the definitive Dio lineup.
Holy Diver remains the undisputed highlight of Dio's career The rock historian Ian Christe relates that for the post-Sabbath solo career "Dio simplified his stories substantially for a younger heavy metal audience.
The debut Holy Diver , by his band Dio, reduced lush moral landscapes to simple good-versus-evil conflicts, using the lyrical duality of 'Rainbow in the Dark' and 'Holy Diver' to raise questions about deceit and hypocrisy in romance and religion.
In the sharp contrasts of Dio's imagery, there was always a built-in contradiction that fed adolescent revolt: a black side to every white light, and a hidden secret behind every loud proclamation of truth.
In a similar way, Dio's music balanced torrents of rage with brief acoustic interludes. On IGN 's list of "Top 25 Metal Albums", Holy Diver is at number 8, and this statement followed, "In all his bands, in all his roles, in all his musical vagabond choices, Ronnie James Dio has been fortunate enough to be associated with some of heavy metal's best -- Sabbath, Rainbow, and his own band Dio.
To best represent his tenure in the genre, one must look no farther than Holy Diver. His first album with his new band was also his best.
It is one of metal's best albums, and it spawned two of the greatest metal songs of the '80s: 'Holy Diver' and 'Rainbow in the Dark'.
Featuring the underrated Vivian Campbell on guitar, this album showed that Dio could do it on his own. All lyrics are written by Ronnie James Dio , music as stated.
